it shouldn't be (I used xercesImpl.jar from the binary tar.gz
download).  Yep, diff says they are identical.

Oops, xercesImpl.jar from the archive is
different from the one in the tar.gz package - this is a Xerces
problem, do you want to report it?

xml-apis.jar is not from Xerces, but from xml-commons, see the README
file in Ant's lib directory.

Xerces only ships "half of JAXP" (i.e. the transformation part has not
been included), that's why we decided to use the different
xml-apis.jar - because earlier versions of Ant included the "full"
